Happy Feet

I seldom like animated films...not reality based..yet have found myself really enjoying Happy Feet. The setting is that of a colony of Penguins who to find the mate of their lives would sing their "heart song". To two very talented parents is born an adorable little pinguin who seems to have music not in his voice but in his feet.

The film explores very human themes of intolerance and prejudice, the pressure to conform to the expected by peers, parents and society and the courage of one little penguin to be himself despite the expectations of all.

Wow ....what a lesson! "You are fearfully and wonderfully made" ...strive to be true to God and true to self.
